CANBERRANS near Acton are being warned of the impact of smoke from a fire on Springbank Island.
The fire warning level is set to “advice” and ACT ESA, ACT Rural Fire Service, ACT Parks and Conservation Service and AFP Water Police are helping ACT Fire & Rescue extinguish the flames.
No properties are under threat and there is no risk of the fire spreading.
A containment line has been created around the area of the fire.
Crews will shortly depart the scene but monitoring of the area will continue for the next 24 hours.
The ACT Emergency Services Agency (ESA) is reminding the community to be mindful that we are now in bushfire season and that weather conditions mean that fires can start and spread quickly.
